House of Earth and Blood by Sarah J. Maas is Unforgettable, Rich and Fantastic

The story of half-Fae and half-human Bryce Quinlan as she seeks revenge in a contemporary fantasy world of magic, danger, and searing romance. 

Bryce Quinlan had the perfect life. She was a young, attractive party girl, working a day job in an antiquities store and spending the nights getting drunk and high with her best friends. Until one night a demon murders Bryce’s closest friends. And her best friend. Bryce is left bereft, wounded and alone. The culprit is found and imprisoned and Bryce tries to move on with her life. But then two years later the crimes start up again. The accused is still in prison, so the investigation begins anew, and Bryce finds herself at the heart of it. She will do whatever it takes to avenge the death of her friends.

Hunt Athalar is a notorious Fallen angel, now enslaved to the Archangels he once attempted to overthrow. His enslavement? To use his brutal skills and incredible strength to assassinate his boss’s enemies, no questions asked. But with these crimes wreaking havoc in the city, he’s offered an irresistible deal: help Bryce find the murderer, and his freedom will be within reach.

As Bryce and Hunt start working together to solve these crimes, they dig deep into Crescent City’s underbelly, discovering a dark power that threatens everything and everyone they hold dear. But they also find in each other a blazing passion. They’d both sworn off being involved with people, but could this attraction set them free from the rules they’ve put on themselves? As their undeniable attraction grows, so too does the darkness in the city. Will they be able to save their city, and each other, before it’s too late?

Sarah J. Maas has delivered a rich and fantastic urban fantasy world in House of Earth and Blood. She is the queen of worldbuilding, with the world she builds being just similar enough to our own to easily place ourselves in it, but with the fantastic addition of angels, fae, werewolves and many other magical creatures to set it apart. This is the story for those who truly want to escape the ‘real world’ while they read. It will completely transport you to a brand-new universe and immerse you in their politics, their languages, their customs. You will find yourself dreaming of escaping to this make-believe magical world, and just hoping that it might really exist.

With unforgettable characters, Maas writes a deliciously torturous slow-burn romance cut through with page-turning suspense. It is no surprise that she is a #1 New York Times bestselling author, and House of Earth and Blood is a brilliant start to her new Crescent City series. A series that delves into the heartache of loss, the price of freedom – and the power of love.
